Whether the tattoo community likes it or not they are always taking criticism from people. Some people just don’t understand that tattoos are a good positive thing and they can’t seem to be past the negative aspect of tattoos. Which if these tattoo people would educate themselves on tattoos and the tattoo community they would find out that these awful rough and tumble, hoodlums are actually a great asset to the community. Several tattoo parlors or tattoo studios as some like to be called have charity events going on at the places of business and they raise money all the time for great cause.

Slowly year by year the negative astigmatism that is associated with tattoos has started to diminish. Because of this several baby boomers are heading out to their local tattoo parlor or tattoo studio to get the ink they have always wanted but felt society would not except them because of it.  So why the reason for baby boomers all of a sudden getting inked? Well some tattoo artist say it’s because they felt it wasn’t social acceptable 15 to 20 years ago and a lot of them are facing retirement now and just don’t care what anyone thinks. Several tattoo parlors are reporting that they are seeing a rise in people between the age of 40 and their mid 50’s getting their first tattoos. This piece of news makes sense especially since a poll that was conducted in 2008  revealed that about 20 percent of adults between the age of 40 and 64 reported having one or more tattoos. Another reason these age group is starting to get tattoos this late in life is because people are becoming more comfortable and curious about body art.
